Anxiety often increases during this time of year. When we are anxious or stressed, we over tax our sympathetic nervous system and operate out of our fight-or-flight mode. When this happens, our heart rate increases, we have difficulty breathing, our muscles contract. We activate our adrenals to release adrenaline and raise our cortisol levels. Imagine what happens to our body when we operate in survival mode all the time. Our adrenals are taxed, we are fatigued, and often develop physical pains that are not due to physical trauma.
Reiki is a Japanese technique which creates relaxation throughout the whole body. Reiki can create a strong, internal flow of energy and help balance your nervous system. Reiki promotes relaxation and restoration while increasing clarity. Through light-hand touch, guided imagery, and breath work, a person can quickly restore physical and emotional well-being. Anxiety is all about being in your head too much where thoughts are whirling around. Reiki helps you connect with your body. By redirecting energy and clearing blocks, an inner strength can emerge and you can experience a deep sense of peace. No need to stress about what to give others.
